Hi folks, After I was injured in a plane crash (2008) I have too much time to invent alternate ways to seat-belt skydivers into airplanes. What if you hang an adjustable Quick-Ejector Snap off the free end of a leg strap and clip it to the nearest cargo-ring? Quick-Ejector Snaps are most commonly used on tandem students’ side straps. If there are no cargo-rings, you can alternately attach a Maillon Rapide #6 link to seat-belt fitting. Before exit, tuck the QE Snap into the pocket/sleeve on your leg pad. After the crash, I used QE Snaps to anchor hundreds of tandem students when jump planes suffered a “shortage” of seat-belts. Yes, I have discussed the legal differences with a major Florida-based tandem manufacturer. They did not disapprove of my new method, but dreaded $$$$$$$$ trying to push the concept over the barrier between FAA TSO C22 (seat-belts) and TSO C23 (parachute harnesses). What are your thoughts?
